Kepuhi Beach is located next door to Papohaku Beach on the western edge of the island of Molokai. Pictures like this one help remind us to appreciate of the beauty of our state’s lesser visited areas.
Kepuhi is short, but wide with soft sand and amazing sunsets. Perhaps its greatest asset–besides the fact that it is in Hawaii on gorgeous Molokai–is that it is typically uncrowded. This is the kind of beach you can visit for a week and only see a few other people.
The beach is edged by interesting black rocks that have been carved into hollowed out shapes over years of buffeting winds and sea. The ocean is active here and caution should be exercised, especially in the winter, as northwest swells hit the shore untouched by any other land.
